  • Not so observant

    I've been visiting this site for a few months now, and just today, noticed and found humorous, that this is called the "ballroom". I guess I'm not very observant. Struck me as very funny, though, not to be disrespectful!

    You have to find humor where you can.

          You would think there wouldn't be so many crazy folks on this forum. After their diagnosis, they should all be a little less nuts

            Even if english is not my first language. I have catch the double meaning of this. But it took me a couple weeks to realise it
            When we live with only one ball we need to have a lot of sense of humor. Since righty has left in 2001 i am used to do a lot of joke with this. In my last relay for life i told to my team that i wanted to burn a light in honnor of righty because i have not lost any close relative to cancer this year. Everybody was laughing

              That's right. We just go "nut".

                Makes me a tough guy

                We watch the funny video shows when the baseball hits the guy "there" and he doubles over, I take the opportunity to tell the folks I am with how tough I am.

                When you think about it, what other choice is there but to hope? We have two options, medically and emotionally: give up, or Fight Like Hell.
